Dad’s Creamy Cucumber Salad

by 247tasty

There is a lot to say in salads with cucumbers. These are crunchy and crunchy, soothing, and a perfect way to bring some vegetables down. This version is all that, but it’s so much more. It’s also fast making, creamy, and accompanied with herby dill and the peppery radish bite. It’s enticing to keep you refresh during summer.

The salad is perfect for a picnic or dessert, but we prefer to serve it as a lunch side dish all week long. It hangs well in the fridge, so preparing this ahead of time is not a problem. But it can be hard to warn before you have to serve it not to eat it all yourself. While waiting for something so good can be difficult, a bit of patience pays off here. This salad only shines when it’s got time to absolutely chill out, so give it some time to sit out in the fridge before serving it. No matter what, the cucumbers are refreshing, but letting this salad chill not only gives the flavors a chance to meld, it also highlights the cool and creamy crispness that’s going on.

(1) sweet onion, thinly sliced
